Just awful, I will not return to this office again. I came in with a severe cough and wheezing the only thing that was prescribed to me was an inhaler and cough suppressant. My symptoms didn't improve and I called the office to get a prescription for an antibiotic I was told no because it was a virus. I went to get a second opinion from another doctor turns out I have a sinus infection and bronchitis that can only be treated with antibiotics. Luckily I got a second opinion before I got sicker.

Overall I found Dr. Farrell to be competent, caring if not somewhat of a cookbook doctor. I also found him to be a bit judgemental about confronting patients on their weight. He could use some training on motivational interviewing as I felt like a bad person when he would bring it up and not motivated to change my unhealthy behaviors.

A wonderful doctor, gentle and understanding and able to diagnose symptoms very well. He took good care of me.
